let love be without hypocrisy. abhor
what is evil. cling to what is good. be kindly
affectionate to one another with brotherly love,
in honor giving preference to one another; not
lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the
lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation,
continuing steadfastly in prayer (romans 12:9-12).
cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
do not fret–it only causes harm.
for evildoers shall be cut off;
but those who wait on the lord,
they shall inherit the earth (psalm 37:8-9).
being confident of this very thing, that he
who has begun a good work in you will
complete it until the day of jesus christ (phillippians 1:6).
